RC's Traveling Historic Scroll makes International News
In February of 2016, a generous benefactor bequeathed an Old Testament Scroll from circa 1750 to Ratio Christi. Our Vice President of Operations Michael Bossman travels to churches and universities with this portion of the Hebrew Torah as an example of historical evidence for Biblical accuracy. With an upcoming scroll appearance at the University of Mobile in Alabama in September 2016, the school's news digest published an article about the scroll.
This news was then picked up and covered in an article at Breaking Israel News, an online news magazine all the way in Israel which writes from a perspective complimentary to both Christian and Jewish worldviews. The scroll is described, including photos, and Bossman is quoted in both pieces.
UPDATE: Three days later, news of the scroll coming to U of Mobile showed up in The Press-Register, a newspaper serving southwest Alabama. It is one of Alabama's oldest newspapers.

Interview with RC President appears in Canadian Blog
RC President Corey Miller and apologist/pastor Stephen Bedard talked apologetics together in May 2016. Bedard, who is the pastor at Queen St. Baptist Church in St. Catherines, Ontario, runs Hope's Reason Apologetics Blog and Hope's Reason Journal. Their discussion resulted in Bedard's Hope's Reason blog post, "The Need for Apologetics on the Secular College Campus," where Miller highlights the reasons for the importance of an apologetics ministry on campuses where there is intense opposition to the Christian worldview. Ratio Christi's outreach in Canada is growing thanks to partnering with people like Bedard who want to see apologetics thrive as a movement across church as well as campus, both in Canada and the U.S.
